A day after the exit of both Jerry Flannery and Felix Jones from Munster was confirmed by the province comes news of another possible departure.
The Irish Times reports this morning that Munster out-half Bill Johnston is likely to leave Thomond Park and join Ulster.
It's said that the 22-year-old has taken the decision due to his position down the number ten pecking order. Johnston is currently behind Joey Carbery, Tyler Bleyendaal and JJ Hanrahan. This season, he has made just four starts.
Johnston made his Munster senior debut two years ago against Zebre. He was given a two-year extension to his contract in April of last year. His first start in the Pro14 came in November against Cheetahs.
Billy Burns, who moved to Ulster just last season, is the number one out-half at Ravenhill. Angus Curtis and Johnny McPhillips are the other number tens on the books.
